Kite 2012

Kitesurfing News Year 2012-2016!

It´s fun to jump with your kite, but be careful…

Posted by kite2012 On May - 24 - 2012

You´ve done it thousands times or even more, perhaps 10.000 times. You’re skilled and you think you´re the master of jumping. And yes, you might be damn good at jumping with your kite, many of us are. Me myself love to jump and as well! I do it often and I’m usually dumb enough to do it over shallow water. 99 jumps out of 100 may be nice with smooth landings, but I don’t think none of us make 100% perfect jumps, not even Ruben Lenten does! Ok, I know that Ruben likes to ride in storms, but still, you hopefully get my point. To take precautions is quite easy, don’t jump over shallow water and use a flexible board, preferable without heel straps or boots. Simple precautions that can save your knees. Another tip is to land with your ass instead of on the board if you feel that a landing have the potential to become hard. Is it a good idea to land with your ass when jumping in shallow water? Exactly, that’s why you better make those “personal height record jump” in deep water, or at least where it’s about 3-4 feet deep.

This guy from Sweden is one that did not have the luck on his side one day when he was kiteboarding. This is his story that hopefully will get some of us to think before when we are out kiteboarding this summer.
